For Jay! The Fish Whisperer

Silent salmon silhouettes slip along the shore
The hum of the skiff warms his senses
The water whispers to him…
A row of corks stretch away, into the distance
Lapping waves beat against the hull
The water whispers to him…
“Almost there”
The rain taps lightly on his gear
Wet wind rips across his face
The water whispers to him…
“Come home”
His face twitches into a grin
His heart warms him from within
He whispers back…
“I am”
